HI,

I am Daryl.

Based within the Northwest of the UK.

Massive apologies, I have read through the documentation pertaining to inheriting a coin collection and I am still unsure.

I have inherited a small collection of coins dating from 1860 to present of all variations. While normally I would find it easier to sell the collection, while it is not related to coins I know the struggle in attempting to obtain that one piece and therefore I thought I would direct it towards this website.

I am unsure and unaware if it is okay to list the coins and where?

any advise or guidance recommended on where I can post the list, if it is of interest?

if I have broken rules, I apologies, feel free to not post or delete.

Kind Regards.

Many here would be willing to look at pictures of your coins and render opinions.

Pictures would need to be:
-- full coin both obverse and reverse
-- screen size
-- sharp focus
-- well lit

Select one coin and give it you best at imaging it.
Post the images in here and we'll start making suggests about you pictures.
If the pictures show the coin's details then we'll do the identification, grading and commenting process.
This is not an easy process but if you want good, accurate evaluations it is necessary.
Describe it as if there were no picture.
Picture it as if there were no description.

The 1994 Bi-Metallic Panda is worth a good bit over the value of the gold/silver content.

In my opinion, your best course of action is to visit a library and check out some recent coin books and research your items in the comfort of your own home.

You can also post high quality pictures of your coins that you have questions about. One coin per thread please. (Do not post multiple coins in the same thread). That gets confusing real quick!

Good luck!

From your comprehensive list there is little, other than the Panda and the other gold coin, of great value.
GB white metal coins before 1920 are sterling silver, and then to 1946 are 50% silver - most trade at about silver value unless in excellent condition. Thereafter non-silver and have little value even in stunning condition. The early bronze coinage may be ok, but only if in very nice condition.
The "1893" IOM farthing is presumably 1839 as they did not make one in 1893 as far as I am aware. This has some collectability depending on condition.

If your intention is to sell them, you will get the best value by listing the better ones individually on Ebay, but there is a lot of work there for little actual value. Alternatively sell them (apart from the gold) as a job lot - either at a local auction house or to a suitably trustworthy dealer.

Welcome to the forum.

From the BN14 number your pound note will be one of the last ones issued, between March 1981 and the introduction of the pound coin in 1983. I have a ten year old price guide which lists it as worth 5 in perfect condition. Try ebay.

You have one coin listed as "unrecognizable". If you post pictures of both sides, giving diameter and weight if possible, it is quite likely somebody will ID it for you.

Agree with the above, but we can't help you much further unless we see some photos.
Take your Threepences, they could be $100 or so in UNC, but worth just melt in Fine or lower condition.

You have listed Florins and "Two Shillings". The latter coin is also a Florin as it was worth 2 shillings but they changed the inscription from Florin to Two Shillings in 1937. The fact you have some high quantities of these mean at least you have some money just in silver value. Each of your 1920 - 1946 Florins has 5.6 grams of silver in it worth around 3.50 per coin.

All of the coins up to 1d and the Brass 12 sided 3d's have no metal value (Well a penny has about 3p worth of copper in it). Any coin 1947 or later regardless of face value has no precious metal value either.

With the 3d, silver round ones were issued between 1937 and 1945, and Brass ones were also issued in those years.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Hi,

Thank you all for your swift replies.

I apologies pertaining to the farthings, I meant to have them separate to the Isle of man. They were UK farthings - Queen Victoria specifically the one mentioned above.

I appreciate all comments so far and will take this on board. I will divide my coins specifically into dates (silver based). Thank you for the advice.

Kind Regards,

Daryl

Far from being an expert on Chinese pandas, but the melt should be considerably more than that? 1/28 of an ounce of gold (or about a gram) as I think this contains is worth just north of $60. Accept that the dealer wants to make a profit but...

If the dealer only offered you 39 pounds for your gold price that tells you a lot about THAT dealer!
